There are several new styles at Phillip’s Park, a new neighborhood in the heart of Mount Pleasant. The sizable number of floor plans gives the community a custom-home feel. Right off of Rifle Range Road the neighborhood, although close to a main road, has a very secluded feel to it.

The developer, Jimmy The Cassina Group feels that Phillip’s Park’s location is what makes it most appealing to consumers.
Sea Town Homes is constructing these new homes and townhomes and prices range from $549,000 to $609,000. There are a dozen or more floor plans which gives the homes a more custom look.
In the models, standard features include fiber-cement siding, custom trim on the outside, porches and balconies and mahogany doors. The inside boasts 10-foot ceilings, wireless internet, surround sound, central vacuum system, coffered living room ceilings, heart pine or white oak floors and high-end Viking stainless steel appliances. Each lot is 1/10 of an acre.

Sea Town Homes chose to square feet and have 3 bedrooms and 21/2 baths with the master bedroom downstairs. Each unit has an attached garage.
